Insects as feed & food of the future

ProEnto is proud to announce it has developed a new Neonate Counter for hatching & dosing of Black Soldier Fly Neonate larvae.

Our 'NeoNate Counter' is usable for Black Soldier Fly Larvae producers that need insight in their breeding & production or for research operations and feed stock conversion improvement. Accurate measuring gives the data that is needed to improve feed efficiency, conversion rates and overall performance.

The 'Neonate Counter' contains a fully climatised system to maintain optimum conditions to hatch the eggs and dose the small neonate larvae to grow quickly for 2 to 5 days, before dosing them in crates for feedstock conversion. It is perfect for monitoring hatching rates and to be able to react quickly on a reduction in performance (hatching rate).

Neonate Counter ProEnto Small

Benefits of our Neonate Counter:

  • Perfect for research due to accurate dosing of 100, 1000 or any amount of live neonate larvae
  • Accurate counting of neonate larvae to measure the hatching rate of eggs or continuous dosing
  • Measuring of hatching rates to monitor and improve breeding efficiency
  • Monitoring of performance for continuous production and quality control
  • Automatic continuous dosing of live neonates in collectors with starting diet
  • Less labor for sieving, weighing & sampling based on extrapolation
  • No more estimating on weight and averages of sampling 5DOL
  • Continuous growth to full size larvae with less handling
  • Hatch BSF eggs in a perfect climate-controlled hatchery
  • Higher accuracy compared to manual counting


  • Modular design for easy configuration and assembly
  • Adjustable amounts per dose of neonate larvae
  • Adjustable temperature and humidity
  • Remote access for monitoring and adjustments
  • Small footprint 
  • Client based configurations
  • Alerting system by email or sms 

Modular system with several core modules:

  • Incubator & Hatchery
  • Counter
  • Dosing unit
  • Nursery unit (if needed) with small dosing unit
  • Hardware controller


  • Modular units for hatching, counting, dosing and system
  • Climate controlled environment for humidity & temperature
  • Hardware controller with machine vision and lighting
  • Custom build software
  • Touchscreen 7 inch for on-site control and monitoring

Additional options:

  • Backup power unit
  • Software adjustments per client with custom options 
  • Conveyors for crates & stackers to client’s needs
  • Feed line for hatching diet
  • Hatching during work shifts only
